    Oxana Sagdiyev, my female Tartar Sand Boa (Eryx tartaricus) giving birth on 25-06-2017. Wasn't expecting it quite yet, but luckily I walked past just as she started to go in to labour. Litter of 10. However, one was still born; one with a severely deformed spine; and one that did not survive...

    Hello guys, this is my very first thread here, and I hope I'm not making any mistake on it. Anyhow, I wish to clarify a doubt I have - I work at a zoo on my city, taking care of reptiles. Thing is, there is a overgrow of tortoises there due to the high number of birth of them, coming to a point...

    A couple of days ago I noticed that one of the boas we are looking after had gotten unusually large. I suspected that she was gravid but didn't get my hopes up. This evening we came home from work to find 25 egg like sacks in the vivarium. As far as I am aware this is her first lay. Is it normal...

    I know this is the wrong place but I'm not a member of any other forums. I've just found a cat in my garden that I think is fairly obviously in labour. She's absolutely soaked from the rain and is constantly crying. I've brought her inside and she's in a blanket but I really don't know what...
